Lyon Boss Peter Bosz Confirms Emerson Palmieri to Remain at Club Despite Chelsea’s Recall Attempts
Olympique Lyonnais boss Peter Bosz has confirmed that Emerson Palmieri will remain at the French club despite Chelsea attempting to recall the defender.
The Italian was deemed as Thomas Tuchel’s ‘number one priority’ to return to Chelsea after a season ending injury to Ben Chilwell.
Speaking to the press via Gael Berger, the Lyon manager confirmed that Emerson will not return to Chelsea.
He said: “Yes, we will keep Emerson.”
It was reported that Chelsea have a plan B if Emerson’s recall failed and now they must rely on this.

This comes as a blow to Tuchel, with strongly-linked defender Lucas Digne signing for Aston Villa over the last week.
Kenedy has been recalled however and can play at wing-back, providing cover to Marcos Alonso.
